Media is a business that receives money from advertising. It sells airtime and space to anyone willing to pay the asking price. Advertising and marketing come in different forms, and not just the traditional 30 second TV commercials. The advertiser may ask to have their "experts, doctors, or scientists" appear on a segment or have their products casually embedded in TV shows and movies. Marketing is very subtle nowadays, and not the obvious TV commercials. Marketing is particularly subtle on social media platforms. The advertiser may buy space on the user's homepage and have certain messages displayed from "experts, fact checkers, doctors, or scientists". These "experts" are actually directly or indirectly paid by the advertiser.
